I've been working hard to find a Professional to assist you with your question, but sometimes finding the right Professional can take a little longer than expected.

I wonder whether you're ok with continuing to wait for an answer. If you are, please let me know and I will continue my search. If not, feel free to let me know and I will cancel this question for you.

Thank you,

Hello. My name is Mark and I will try help you with this.


From your description it doesn't sound like you have a problem. The power steering system will not be available until the ecu has verified it is in good condition.


If the system has a fault after verification then it may not work until that fault is rectified.
